Sarah Patton Memorial Services

Horsewoman Sarah Patton, wife of UPHA Hall of Fame trainer and former UPHA President Dave Patton, died unexpectedly in her sleep sometime late Wednesday night or early Thursday morning at their home in Wisconsin. Sarah was 59.

A lifelong horsewoman, Sarah worked at the famed North Ridge Farm for several years and among her duties was taking care of Five-Gaited World’s Grand Champion CH Belle Elegant. Sarah and husband Dave later operated their Oakwood Farm where several world’s and national champions were developed and shown, including CH Stonewall’s Crimson & Clover.

A viewing for Sarah Patton is scheduled for 4-7 p.m. on Wednesday, December 2. Visitation is at 10:00 a.m. Thursday with a service at 11:00 AM and a reception to follow. Donations can be made to Morris Animal Foundation and/or the American Saddlebred Museum in her name. All will be held  at Becker Ritter Funeral Home 14075 West North Avenue, Brookfield, WI.

A celebration of Sarah's life is being planned during the Midwest Charity Horse Show. More details will be added as they become available and a complete tribute to Sarah will be featured in the December 14 issue of Saddle Horse Report.
